wtf?  how is that post anti-semitic?  it merely contains a definition of zionist (no idea if its accurate) and an observation on the content of the talmud (no idea if its accurate).

thats not anti semitic, surely?

For Jews it's not anti semitism for Israelis however it's blatantly anti semitic

The problem appears to be that the quote comes from a fabricated source.

But the JP is echoing the current mantra, that free expression is only for the pro-Israel lobby, which can publish as many lies as it pleases.

This is what was on their website.

"Zionism is a racist ideology where jews [sic] are given supremacy over all other races and faiths."

This is a point where reasonable people may disagree.

"This is found in the Talmud."

This is false.

"There is a law called Baba Mezia"

Baba Metziah (written with a tzadi, not a zion) is a Tractate of the Talmud, a lot of densely worded Aramaic and Hebrew. I actually have the entire Tractate at home, I'm learning about the spiritual qualities of money.

"which allows jews to lie as long as its to non-jews."


"Many pro jewish supporters will cringe at this being exposed because they know it exists, yet they keep quiet about it, hey frip, jla and co [the aliases of other people taking part in the discussion]."

We cringe because it's yet another in the long line of blood libels.

"The Law of Baba Mezia!! Tsk tsk tsk! It's in the Talmud."

Just stupidity.

Bottom line, I don't think that it should be removed, but responded to. I much prefer to call bullshit.

---"Bottom line, I don't think that it should be removed, but responded to. I much prefer to call bullshit."----

Quite correct; whilst the initial statement is debateable the source is wrong. But it's hosted on a forum. To suggest that the BBC should be responsible for the accuracy of forum posts is absurd.
